A great park system makes a great city. 

The city of San Diego Parks and Recreation Department strives to create a practical and inspirational framework of facilities to meet our changing recreational needs and interests. Transforming the City's parks and recreation resources into a sustainable, flexible, and innovative system requires continued financial investment, dedicated employees, and a commitment to San Diegans to provide facilities that reflect the vision of a world-class City.
